@Rich: what volume are you willing to handle? Seems to me that more than 1000 would be a bit much
The great thing about thsi project is that it's low risk -- we have already build the prototypes of these boards -- I have one sitting on my desk in front of me as we speak.
We will be offering them as bare boards, or as kits with boards and connectors etc. that you solder in yourself -- so there's no manufacturing/assembly/test stuff that coudl become overwhelming -- just sticking things in boxes and taking them to the post office.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
